Paulownia, 2 1/8" body, polycarbonate lips, .23 oz. That's as small as I like to build or fish a crankbait. If you can't throw it on a baitcaster rig, ..? These have slightly oversize lips and put out a bunch of thump for their size.

Mark, paulownia is OK to work but sometimes has thin dark bands of soft wood grain adjacent to areas of hard grained white wood. That's not a BIG problem but requires care if hand shaping. I like the wood because it is a true hardwood and anchors hardware well without thru-wire methods, while at the same time it has buoyancy similar to hard balsa at around 18lbs/cu ft.

JB, the baits run 2 - 2 1/2 ft deep.
